Mercedes dealer - Con artist
I'm new to this forum, and the only reason i joined this is to complain about a mercedes dealer in Australia. I don't think i should give the exact dealer, but i'm tempted to..
A respected person that i know, got ripped off by mercedes to say it upfront...
I don't know the exact details on everything but i know he wasn't treated with respect nor got what he wanted.
Anyway what happen was, he brought a brand new 2004 series mercedes, i don't really follow mercedes,but i know it competes with the bmw 3-series compact?
anyway he signed the contract to get the car, and he picked up the car. He then realised that mercedes had gave him a second hand 2002 spec car!! they had altered the contract somehow... i'm not sure what he done, but i think he went to court of some sort and loss the case and now he cant' do anything about it.. So his stuck with a old car where he paid for a brand new spec mercedes, and he cant' even sit in the car for no more than 30mins cause the car is soo uncomfortable...
i know this story sounds sketcy and all, and doesn't sound like a real story with the contract change..
But the guy that brought it, is a great bloke and i trust his every word..
Well when i first heard it, i thought no way that could of happen, but the facts are there, his got a 2002 spec car in his garage now, and paid for a 2004 car.. His lost a couple of grand over this...
anyway, I dont know if this has every happened before, but i guess you can never be so sure about car dealers
